arch!


arch for me!
started on RH6, tried mandrake7+, debian, and then fell in love with slackware. then i stumbled upon arch and never looked back. arch was the only distro i tried that i could totally mess up my system and still be able to recover from it. but then again, seeing the general progression of distros i tried i probably learned a lot along the way on how NOT to break a system and how to recover it

anyways, tried ubuntu and it was quite impressive as well....still not as snappy as arch tho.

Suse it's my choice, all it does it does well: the memory usage is low, the speed is fast and YaST it's getting better and better.

I voted for the one, the only, the Slack. If I had a second vote it would go to Fedora, very different to Slack but in my opinion the best of the RPM distros.

Its gonna be interesting to see the results this year, I think Ubuntu will be right up there.

SuSE, all the way :-) (64 bit )

As a Linux newbie, I tried various distros, SuSE was the only one that just installed. Without _Any_ hassle. It just worked (Yeah, I'm still kind of surprised :P)

Agnula is the BEST.

As it is possible to upgrade from debian to agnula with apt-get, I have put debian here. But the configuration of the sound applications sucks in almost every single distribution. It is why I definitly preffer Agnula/Demudi.

Arch gets it

I got to watch some of their hard work and dedication and they won my heart over.
